would it be possible to see your sketch drawings for the chibi fates characters? I'm trying to learn how to chibi but struggling!
*squints* chibi fates… do you mean my awakening charms? here are a few:
my sketches are pretty loose LOL
but chibis are a lot easier imo bc they’re so round and fun!!
There’s not really a Right way to draw them, but I guess for personal decisions I make when I draw chibis…
- the heads are big! but I don’t like making them TOO big… that’s a personal thing though. mine are about… 2.5-3 heads tall?
- even though the point is that they’re disproportionate, there are certain proportions that I prefer to keep in check, especially arm length: I try to keep the elbows where their [small, chibi] rib-cages end, hands end around the thighs, like a normal human anatomy. this really only matters if you’re drawing, uh, longer legs. some chibi styles have stubby legs, LOL, which is fine too.
- i like using thicker lines for my chibis. that’s all personal taste though, thin lines and no lines are just as good, as long as u use them well.
It’s really hard to teach this kind of thing bc there are just so many ways to do it and none of them are wrong!
